A film made by the Coffee Institute pushing the use of coffee as a means of reaching out to young people. I agree with idleracer that this film was made earlier than its listed date of 1969. The kids are dressed more like 1964-66. By 1969, the boys would have had long hair and the girls would be in bell bottoms. Interestingly, both the kids and the adults are smoking like chimneys and there's even a close-up of an ashtray filled with cigarette butts.
Strange to think that all the teenagers in the film are now grandparents.

While viewing this, I found myself seriously doubting it's presumed vintage. There's just way too many short-haired guys for this to have been filmed in 1969, not to mention the girl's clothing styles, although it might not have been released until then. Obviously, the inclusion of the cover of the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction" proves that the earliest it could've been filmed was the summer of 1965, but I kind of suspect that it's from around a year or two later. Nontheless, I'm giving it a 5 star rating. It brought a smile to my face, and I especially enjoyed the theme music (both the vocal and instrumental version) which has some pretty sophisticated chord changes. I wonder if it was ever released as a single on some obscure label.

This VERY amazing film is one pip to a) sell more coffee and b) covert. Oops, I mean I'm sorry, as the coffeehouses proprietors shown here say they're not looking to convert people, that I believe. What's curious is that this film shows no effort to show that no other coffeehouses exist except christian themed ones. I mean, RIGHT. Interesting that noone was smoking and that nearly everyone was white as well.
But nevertheless, this is a fine film with great great music, and a great 60's feel to it.
